Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to be the biggest film of 2017, and is on my list of most-anticipated films of the year. In news that doesn’t surprise a single person, director James Gunn confirms that Marvel Studios is eyeing a third Guardians of the Galaxy film, but he doesn’t know if he will direct it.
In an interview with Complex, Gunn talks about the studios intentions:
“There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure. We’re trying to figure it out. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do really, that’s all it is. I got to figure out where I want to be, what I want to spend the next three years of my life doing. You know, I’m going to make another big movie; is it the Guardians or something else? I’m just going to figure it out over the next couple of weeks.”
Gunn goes on to talk about the newest character coming to the franchise, Star Lord’s father Ego the Living Planet:
“Ego is a living planet who is able to manifest himself in different ways he’s been alone for millions of years and he’s learned how to control the molecules around him in such a way as to create avatars of themselves, such as Kurt Russell. I think Ego was a very lonely character out there by himself and went off in search of love and perhaps found it in Quill’s mother.”
Gunn also talked about the role the Guardians will have in the upcoming Marvel team-up film Avengers: Infinity War:
“You know listen, I don’t think we should overstate things that it is an Avengers movie, but the Guardians are a part of the cosmic universe, they’re a part of Thanos’ stories, so, they are in there, and they have, not the biggest, but, an integral part to that.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens on May 5, and then they will return for Avengers: Infinity War in 2018.
